Hi, I work with 'Mackenzie White conversations', tailoring psychological therapy to your needs.
A range of individual psychological therapies, couples sex therapy, mindfulness programmes, discussion forums and professional supervision.
I offer: Individual therapy and professional supervision.
There is a vast array of therapies on the market which can make it hard to decide on which service is right for you. I advise you to be picky and work with a therapist that suits you.
This is why I offer an initial consultation hour. We can meet to discuss your concerns and goals and you can hear how I work as a therapist, with no obligation. I would aim by the end of this first session to offer feedback on how I understand your difficulties and suggest how therapy can start to help you attain your goals.
I offer two distinct therapies as an initial step:
- Dynamic Interpersonal therapy (DIT): recommended by NICE guidelines (the government's 'gold standard'), this is a 16-week therapy package. The aims are to understand past relationship patterns and how they unfold in current relationships.
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT): recommended by NICE guidelines (the government's 'gold standard'), this can be from 2-20 therapy sessions and aims to help with a range of anxiety and mood disorders, from phobias, depressions through to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
I offer longer term integrative psychotherapy for clients who have found the first steps useful but feel ongoing support may be needed.

Training, qualifications & experience
I started training in Integrative psychotherapy and counselling in 2004 at Roehampton university. I worked in numerous GP surgeries, with MIND the charity and in drug and alcohol services.
I joined the NHS in 2008. I progressed from a primary wellbeing practitioner to high intensity therapist, to service manager and then clinical lead. I currently hold a part-time post as a senior practitioner in a busy IAPT primary-care service with the NHS. In addition I have worked in secondary-care supporting people with enduring mental health needs and forensic histories.
I trained in CBT at the Institute of Psychiatry in 2010. I have studied under some of the leading names in CBT such as David Clarke, Anke Elhers, Christine Padesky, David Veale and Nick Grey amongst others. This has given a firm base to work with depression, phobias, social anxiety, agoraphobia, generalised anxiety, post traumatic stress, obsessional compulsive disorder and panic attacks.
I have more recently trained in Dynamic Interpersonal Psychotherapy (DIT) at the Tavistock and Anna Freud Institute. I have studied under some of leading names in DIT such as Peter Fonagy, Alessandra Lemma and Mary Target.
Ongoing training is an integral part of my practice. I take a keen interest in compassion based therapy and gestalt therapy. I not only attend regular trainings but work to create trainings for other services and peer based supports. I have created training sessions for children centres, GP practices and peer based psychology groups.
